Certificate of Excellence
Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a luxurious nine room boutique hotel located right in the heart of Stone Town (an Unesco World Heritage site). It is independently owned and daily under Dutch management and an ideal home to explore and experience all the beauties of this magical town and Island. Zanzibar's rich history is integrated throughout the hotel by Arabian, Indian and English designs, this in combination with all modern comfort (airco, free WiFi, flatscreen TV's, etc). Each room/suite has its own unique decor with many local originating antique pieces of furniture, magical beds, colourful silks, etc. Room rates for every purse definitely makes this a place to stay. As you walk through the front door, you notice the soft aqua blue interior colours along with the antique furniture. You are immediately put into a state of calm and relaxation.

Thank you, Ryan! It was our pleasure to have you and Dhashen as our guests and we're happy you enjoyed your stay, despite the little quirk (or maybe it added a bit of magic?). We look forward to welcoming you again in Stone Town!

Breakfast amazing, walk out the door and step into the Muslim world with narrow alleys, like the Casbah in Morocco. Clean room with balcony view onto the early-morning bustle below. Excellent, welcoming staff. Oh, and they bring coffee to your room!
